    Hi All

    I sold my old Mico and now just have the Panny E30 but is limited by it's UK region only code.

    What are people now using to unlock/upgrade etc their machines?

    As the E50 is now out and even panasonic themselves are selling it for 299£ multiregion then paying too much for the honour of de-regioning it would be silly.

    Any leads, tips, suggestion or comments welcomed.

    I don't think it's a simple case of using your remote to make it multi-region, think you have to get it chipped mate.

    Hi

    I answer to my own Q; I had a feeling that since the new E50 is region free and 200£ less than the E30 then the Panasonic shop maybe able to help with the problem.

    Stopped into one after I did the post and low and behold for £20 they'll make your E30 region free by just loading a disk of some sort.

    No hardware mods and it stays region free.

    Spread the word. Will get it done next week.

    Cheers

    E30 needs a Firmware CD-Rom and Chipped remote to be made Multi-Region.

    Panasonic UK don't sell Multi-Region players (Not allowed to), If Panasonic dealers sell and make them multi-region well it's upto them.

    THe E50/E60/E100 only require a chipped remote, E30/HS2 require Firmware CD and Chipped Remote, I used http://www.dvdchips.co.uk/ to make my E30 Multi-region.

    Hi

    The salesman might not know exactly what was going on in the back, but the price of £20 is good.
